A driver was shot dead along Mombasa-Nairobi Highway after thugs opened fire on his car.
A report by Daily Nation on Tuesday, June 1, indicated that the thugs abruptly opened fire on his car just a kilometer away from Changamwe Police Station.
Quoting a police report from the station, the media house indicated that the deceased was driving in a Toyota Premio.
The report further indicated that the victim, who was driving from Kibarani towards Changamwe, died on the spot.
“A Toyota Premio driven by one unknown male was driving from Kibarani towards Changamwe. On reaching Changamwe roundabout, a vehicle approached it,” read the report in part.
The report was made to the police station anonymously.
The body of the deceased was transferred to Coast General Hospital mortuary awaiting post-mortem.
This comes even as insecurity across the country continues to sour in what experts reckon is the negative effect of the Covid-19 pandemic to the economy.
